dog owners are said to be killing their pets with kindness but britain's canines naaman the most obese in the world and authorities under former reports it's not just portly pets that might need to look at their diets. bruce the box is fact and he's trying to shed some pounds that lack of exercise imposed so him believe you need size to almost. twice he's ideal weight these will be honey and goats milk every morning and any dinner in the evening and obviously the few treats of biscuits only goes into he's in good company though research shows over half of britain's dogs are in fact obese that's up fifteen percent in four years and makes them some of the fattest in the world a quick straw poll of our own helped explain why. give them chicken fillets. chili sticks and if you can get their arms will actually have of perfect inches put in the bathroom for the same results we don't get. that julie jones is only
too aware of the problem but says often dog owners aren't feeding their pet just one cup of tea is the human equivalent of eating a hamburger and being overweight consider fairly effect a dog's health it is their pet and they love him dearly and i generally say you came in with love they get joint problems ok then they get heart problems and then it's difficult to proving. but surgeries like julie's are offering help in fact three courses if you kate betts now have at the city clinics chubby canines including bruce being put on a diet of wholesome food and exercise well fifty five kilograms proof he used to be known as rochester's heavyweight boxer he's now down to forty nine kilograms but the thing is he's not the only saggy dog story in the u.k. there are currently four million dogs that are overweight. and animal experts don't
expect that figure to fall fast dogs are like their owners so the saying goes and with over sixty percent of britons now obese that is becoming the new norm but individual owners you can do something about it only quickly but again i think just like you tube and obesity now it's got to the point of being so common. it's going to take a long time to do with the sign. there's no looking back the smarties losing he's got as an impressive rate for him at least it's nothing tastes as good as slim felix and. london. making a lot of new friends and that report well after the break an r t we report on a rare medical condition that makes people age prematurely do stay with us.
if you look at my generation of americans and even more so at the millennium there are a lot of people with all sorts of piercings and tattoos everyone wants to express themselves by getting the exact same cliched tattoos and piercings as everyone else but can we discriminate against these people because of their and out appearance normally people are against discrimination because of punishes people for the way they were born their raise search gender but no one was born with big metal loops stretching out their ear lobes so essentially yes you can't judge someone by their tattoos and piercings because they got these done consciously as an adult i mean we all know that you need to dress up on a first date or job interview to make a good impression and well having the words thug life written up your forearm are not very convincing to me that you are going to make a valuable employee or girlfriend one of the worst things that we tell children is that you should never judge a book by its cover the problem is that no one has the time to open up all these books and investigate so obviously ninety percent of the time we're going to be
judging each other by the cover of our book and if that cover is full of dead fetus tattoos like one guy i know that you should expect a lot of bigoted reactions over the course of your life but that's just my opinion . my name is tony right is and i have a ph d. in mathematics on the mathematician and i also blogger and i write about this week is gender madness.
